I didn't really have a specific design in mind when I sat down to do these; I just knew I wanted to use Nails Inc Porchester Square in the design. Described as a "chic muted mushroom shade", it's a lovely shade I've been wanting to use for awhile.
And when I looked at it, it seemed to scream "VINTAGE!!!". So I decided to listen to it and do a vintage floral design (OK. I'm talking about listening to my nail polish. That's... a little odd, but I'm sure many of you can sympathize).
(Here's my first version of floral nails)
On the pointer and index finger, I started with a white base (Revlon Spirit) then added flowers with Porchester Square and another Nails Inc polish, Chelsea Bridge Road (one of their foil effect polishes).
The leaves of the flowers are Sephora by OPI Read My Palm on top of RGB Dew.
On my middle finger and pinky, I started with a base of Porchester Square and added stripes of Chelsea Bridge Road and Spirit.
Of course, I had to matte-ify it. (And I thought I had kicked that obsession...) I used JINsoon Matte Maker -- it worked really well, but not substantially better than my $5 drugstore matte topcoat.
What do you think of Porchester Square? And which do you prefer, matte or glossy?
Thanks for reading, and be sure to let me know what you think!Lucy xx
